About me

 

In 2014 I started as a gardener/ landscaper for the lovely ladies of Growing Gardens in East Lothian. My passion for plants and design goes back a lot further however. Now I am making designs, planting plans and give advice on sustainable gardening.

 

As a young girl I once found a small cherry tree seedling under a shrub in our front garden. After having transplanted it to a sunny position, I nurtured it. Twice a day I brushed off lice with a toothbrush and watered it. When my parents moved to the Netherlands they took the tree. Now, years later, they enjoy the white blossoms every year.

 

It must have been when I was 11 years old that I bought a book about garden design from my saved allowance. My parents would find me in my room drawing and sketching down all the ednless ideas that I had in my head.

 

Having been trained in agriculture (BSc) and studied applied animal science (MSc) I like to learn more every day about topics such as ecology, botany and soil science. Applying this knowledge is key to my designs.
